Mountaineers who have spent the majority of their lives climbing great peaks around the globe never stop learning new skills, while improving the ones they already possess. As a result, for those who are just entering the world of mountaineering, it is crucial to learn the basics, the fundamentals before progressing to more challenging lessons. Thus, why I am happy to offer this 5-day, basic level mountaineering course in the Andes of Chile, near the wonderful city of Santiago.
Throughout the 5-days of this course, you will learn a great deal. Much will be covered, all of which will be important and beneficial for your future mountaineering expeditions.

Security and risk management
Orientation (how to use a compass and topographic chart)
Mountain equipment and clothing
Proper walking techniques on rough terrain
Setting up camps
First aid and rescue techniques in the mountains
Since this is a basic level course, it is perfect for beginners. However, you should be in good physical condition as we will practice what you are learning in the mountains. Furthermore, during the course, you will also get to enjoy some magnificent views. Also, because the course takes place near Santiago, you will have a convenient and enjoyable base.

For more than 20 years I have worked as a guide in Chile. Join me and I´ll be able to show you the wonderful spots that the Andes offer to those who share my passion for big mountains.
I live in Santiago de Chile, the Chilean capital, where there are many options for high altitude ascents, even over 6,000 meters, in close proximity to the city. I also regularly organize trips to the Chilean Altiplano, where there are many mountains over 6000 meters. However, the main attraction of these trips is to witness the intensity and loneliness of the Atacama Desert.
I would love to have the opportunity to share these magical moments with you and help you achieve your goals and dreams.

Thank you explore-share for a wonderful via feratta experience. We have been wanting to learn for a long time but don't have the facilities in Scotland. The guide Mitja was extremely helpful and knowledgeable, answering all my many questions and providing advice. On the day head to take another group but he quickly arranged another guide Borut, who was brilliant. We had a fantastic morning learning via ferrata at Hvadnik in the gorge. It gave us the confidence to later hire our own equipment and go out in Mojstrana. Altogether a five star + experience. Thank you.

Hello! I have been thoroughly impressed by the service and assistance that explore-share have provided the past couple years in helping to plan my trip to the High Tatras in Poland. I really appreciated the flexibility that they provided in allowing me to rearrange my trip twice owing to covid. They were responsive and communicative throughout. This trip was part of my Stag weekend celebrations and explore-share connected me with an outstanding guide in the form of Marcel - he was an excellent recommendation and we really enjoyed our guided hike in the High Tatras with him. Marcel was an outstanding professional, placed a high focus on preparing well and staying safe, and was also a great guy! Highly recommend. Many thanks and best wishes - Richard
